SOLDAdd to Compare
To everyone who’s bid on a charity guitar, everyone who’s gotten the word out to lend a hand, everyone who’s just donated straight to the cause—Dream Guitars thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. We’ve been able to raise thousands of dollars for Puerto Rico hurricane relief, to support hurricane soup kitchens in Houston, Texas, and to help fight the forest fires plaguing California. But the fight is far from over! We want to wrap up 2017 with a strong display of solidarity for these and other causes. This time we’re auctioning three guitars at once! Help us help those in need, and get a great deal on a unique instrument in the process. These auctions are open until 12pm EST December 17th in order to make sure everyone has a chance to bid.
This 2011 Mario Beauregard OMC is on auction to continue to support the United For Puerto Rico fund providing food, water, and more to an island still struggling to survive. This guitar was originally $9,995, but bidding starts at only $4,995.
Follow the contour from florentine cutaway to fretboard, from the sharp peak to cinched waist, down to the 15 5/8″ lower bout. Take in the glassy smoothness of the finish, the way the Ebony bridge rises organically up from below the rosette, itself a quiet testament to the vibrancy of Abalone and Koa. Feel the gentle curve of the C-shaped neck in your left hand, fret ends rounded into half globes after the style of Ervin Somogyi. This 2011 OM-C from Mario Beauregard is a study in smoothness, in a calm and collected style that catches the eye with its simple elegance.
We’d expect no less from one of Somogyi’s graduates–and the voice cannot fail but to inspire. Bass notes have a clean, well-defined edge; the middle register lively, balanced; the trebles haunting in their sustain. For the fingerstylist who needs each string and every note to ring clear as its own bell, this Beauregard OM-C more than fits the bill. Listen to Al’s sample, you’ll hear what we’re talking about. Mario’s ability to voice a guitar to produce complex overtones on top of a pianistically precise projection utilizes the combination of African Blackwood and Cedar to be perfect for all kinds of music, and all sorts of tunings. We found DADGAD and CGCGAD to be lively and crisp, with a comfortable play feel.
